The term Monastery of the Heart is taking on a life of it’s own these days. Sr. Joan’s book, “The Monastery of the Heart”, was published this year. About the same time as the E-course began, the first ever on-line monastery was introduced as an outreach of the Benedictine Sisters of Lake Erie, of which Sr. Joan is member. I heartily recommend this site as well: www.monasteriesoftheheart.org --“a new movement for a new world.”
I am in awe of how these women have become leaders in helping all of us, women and men, create a monastery in our hearts and follow a God-filled and God-led life, wherever we are and whatever we do. And here I am, at my cottage by the sea or in my angel room at home, participating in an Benedictine way of life in new ways, know or to be made known to me. Join me.
